People who like Clash of Clans or Boom Beach should love this iOS strategy game because it has the best of both worlds. BattlePlans created by C4M is a strategy game, players build up their Kingdom by attacking other kingdoms and defending their own. You have multiple hero’s with different abilities. Each hero also commands different troops that are unlocked when you level up. BattlePlans is a free, but there are also in game purchases to help players level up faster.
The “Kingdom” screen has different buildings like a tavern where heroes are found for sale, docks where the kingdoms war turtles are kept (war turtles are like boats). There is also a pool of serfs where troops are stored, a forge where troops are trained, a pool of archers where archers are stored, a hero’s tent where the troops you already own are kept, and a gold storage area. This is your home base where all things are created. As levels are increased more items open up for use as well.
From the home screen players can also get to the Map screen. The map screen shows other players kingdoms to be conquered, tribes to be fought, as well as other players outposts to be attacked. Another form of attack is a player raid where players can earn gold by successfully attacking. From the kingdom or map screen players can get to the defense log by clicking the clock in the upper left hand corner to see successful as well as failed defenses by their troops.
Players can get to the game news screen by clicking the envelope under the clock icon. Under both of those is a settings icon that takes players to a settings screen. In the upper right hand corner of the screens is the total amount of gold and total number of gems currently owned. Players can use gems to help speed up their progress. Eventually players run out of gems and they can be earned slowly or purchased in the gem store through in game purchase.
How to Fight and How to Defend
After players have chosen their heroes and troops to support those heroes then they are ready to go to the map screen and do some attacking. Players can attack outposts owned by other players to attack. If the outpost attack is successful then they take over that outpost and must setup a defense plan to defend it. Players can also perform player raids. When players win raids they end up looting some of the other players gold but nothing is taken over on the map from the other player. Players can also attack the evil skulls and take control of the map from them. The skulls are more of a campaign play style and the other attack types are more of a PvP style of game play. The great thing I like about this game is that there are so many ways to have fun playing it.
Defending your outposts is simple yet not easy. First you must win the outpost, then you must setup a defense plan. First move your troops to a starting position. Once you do that tell them where to go on the map after the fighting starts. You also need to tell them how long to wait before they move to that spot. Timing and positioning are everything! Make sure you time it well and you will win the war!
